Two ways:

(1) - create a two-column one-row table and then put each of your calendar 
tables into one of the cells

(2) - create a one-item list and put a table in each of the label and body

Remember you can use lists and tables as layout facilities in which you can 
position other constructs, including complete tables and lists.  XSL-FO 
allows these to be nested.

I hope this helps.
